Heterogeneous spring phenology shifts affected by climate: supportive evidence from two remotely sensed vegetation indices

Xiyan Xu, William J Riley, Charles Koven, Gensuo Jia
2019 Environmental Research Communications  
Assessing the spatial heterogeneity of SG trends associated with different satellites is essential for robustly interpreting phenological dynamics and their responses to climate.  ...  The increased SG-temperature sensitivity is associated with increased precipitation during the spring season, which regulated the sensitivity of SG to spring temperature.  ...  contract DE-AC02-05CH11231 to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  ...

Temperature and Snow-Mediated Moisture Controls of Summer Photosynthetic Activity in Northern Terrestrial Ecosystems between 1982 and 2011

Jonathan Barichivich, Keith Briffa, Ranga Myneni, Gerard Schrier, Wouter Dorigo, Compton Tucker, Timothy Osborn, Thomas Melvin
2014 Remote Sensing  
Here we use recently developed gridded datasets of moisture variability to investigate the links between warming and changes in available soil moisture and summer vegetation photosynthetic activity at  ...  Establishing the connections between warming and drought stress has been difficult because soil moisture observations are scarce.  ...  Vegetation in this region varies from dense evergreen needleleaf forests in the central boreal region to sparsely forested woody savanna and open shrublands toward the north (Figure 5b ).  ...
